There have been plenty of ZX Spectrum crowdfunders in recent years, and not all of them have gone well. Some, in fact, have been a disaster. So why should we care about yet another one?
The ZX Spectrum Next looks like it could be a decent effort – and it’s already hit its £250,000 Kickstarter goal.
The Next is a new machine, fully compatible with the original computer, with improvements and expansions. The idea is you can play any games, demos and use original hardware, but it also runs new software created more recently to make use of expanded hardware, including new graphics modes and faster processor speeds.
